In the last three weeks, I have been closely observing the wonderful activities by the amazing organic farming expert, highly empowered, profoundly creative, multi- talented storyteller and distinguished Cameroonian Scholar GERALDINE SINYUY. Sinyuy writes intriguing folktales. As if that is not enough, Geraldine is a certified educator, a determined writer. She also tells her stories through sustainable organic agriculture. She eats the food from her lush farm and her food recipes speak stories of diversity, talent, hope and promise. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC is a highly charged platform spirited to archive, profile, publish and exhibit diverse talents. We find this installment refreshing, new and unique. We are bringing her food exhibition and that seeks to educate us that we can write, speak, influence and as well work hard for to grow the food we eat and even read the stories we write. ONE STOP SHOP. Dr. Sinyuy is trendsetting an example of creativity, sustainability, self-empowerment, promise and community leadership. The greatest traits God gave us is the mind, commitment, dedication, tenacity, creativity and resilience and this we need to embrace and walk the talk- ( Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA)

Wholesomely, NOTHING REMEMBERS is a paradox of life, death and resurrection as seen in seasons of life ,in the aging , as seen in the sunrise and sunset, so EVERYTHING REMEMBERS that becomes in the paradox of Michael Dickel’s NOTHING REMEMBERS. My argument is there is nothing called nothing, even void is full of something even if that something is emptiness. Nothing Remembers is a deep paradox of existence and non-existence, or nonexistence in existence. NOTHING REMEMBERS , the title is a complex analogy of the world found in Michael Dickel’s poesy and that is artistically synchronized by the visual art oil painting Angel of Time, which is the cover jacket of the , remember time depicts age and agelessness , existence , spirituality , memory and hope . All these factors are captured in NOTHING REMEMBERS. When you remember an incident , the first flicker of your memory is TIME , so the use of the visual art ANGEL OF TIME on the book cover synchronizes presentation , literary swag , artistic dexterity, reason ,morality and depth of detail ,etiquette, personal experience ,travelogue and deep personal reflections.
